No one loves tax

But right now – if you give a little extra towards the care of Durban's elders – you could find yourself smiling when it’s time to submit your tax return!

Making a donation to Tafta before the tax year ends on 28 February could reduce your (or your company’s) tax liability. Because, all donations to Tafta are tax deductible in terms of Section 18A of the Income Tax Act. You’ll receive a certificate entitling you to claim back from SARS. And you could earn valuable BBBEE points too! Please contact Nirupa Kasserchan on 031 332 33721 or email nirupa@tafta.org.za if you need more information about claiming these benefits.

With the tax year ending in just a few weeks' time, there couldn't be a better time to make your donation. And the more you give, the more you save!


Wouldn't you rather bring a smile to the face of one of our elderly residents than find yourself having to make an extra payment to SARS? You have the power to make that possible by donating online now. Thank you for your ongoing support.

Millennials making the same mistakes

According to a recent survey conducted by 10x Investments, young South Africans may be in danger of making the same mistakes as their parents when planning for retirement.
The stark reality is that 94% of South African are unable to retire comfortably and Millennials may be repeating the same mistakes. Despite changing trends and behaviours, the formula for a successful retirement remains simple: put away 15% of your salary over a 40-year period in a high-equity fund with total fees of less than 1%, and let time do the work.
